I thought it is a worthwhile initiative and agree to take part. Then I realized I have to source for the supply myself and have to plan everything. Another project with the concept of learning entreprenuership has the supply provided, and marks are awarded for presentation. I thought of both to be the same. I took part in both, think I must be crazy or think myself to free, looking back.
Initially, I thought, how bad can it be. I have been analysising business haven't I?
I thought of balloon castle, selling stationary with a unique packaging message etc. The real problem is cost! When I source for the supply using contacts and online. The cost I can get is about $1 to $2. I intend to sell it at only $2, any higher, I think will be quite a turn off. Best part, if I do not make a profit, I do not mind, but all the money will go to waste and I will feel bad trying to recover cost, and will most probably just treat my seed money as donation too.
My CCE HOD who used to run a business outside, see me thinking through this event (her project actually, I am just a participant), told me she will do a donation drive and ask pupils to package the collected items nicely so that they are involved not just in the selling process. And it will be FOC. What a brilliant idea! She has kindly agree to let me share the "loot" oops, no la, collection.
Anyone has any brilliant idea? Leave a comment or if you want privacy send me an email? I intend to only use $200 for this "venture"
LOL, sorry for being a giam gana
